Chinese Fine Arts
CELEBRATE CHINESE CULTURE is an epic series of books about the different facets of Chinese heritage throughout history. China’s modernity cannot be fully understood without looking into its glorious past of milestones in scientific inventions, political exploits and artistic distinction. This series will provide the reader with an insight into one of the world’s magnificent civilizations.
In this volume, Chinese Fine Arts, we take you to a distinguished gallery featuring Chinese fine arts developed over thousands of years. Chinese calligraphy, painting, music, dance, theatre and sculpture are the different mediums used by uninhibited artists to convey both the beautiful and grotesque of Chinese society.
